    Really nice hub, the new bearings are an improvement and the bolt on interface is great. Builds up easy and rolls smooth!

    It's a hub for a fat bike, don't worry about weight so much. Tire weight will make more of a difference.

    Since it's essentially their rear singlespeed disc hub sans freewheel threads, I'd say the weight is quite close to 300 grams.

    I have the new (not ultra new) version which I've managed to adjust to my liking so I'll stick to it for now. I'm not bothered by the superfluous freewheel threads on my front wheel and the hub will be more versatile should I ever build anything else from it.
